3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Brennanís. Pours a very dark brown with garnet highlights. Almost no head and almost no lacing. Gotta enjoy that reddish tint in the color though. Aroma has roasted malts, cocoa powder and some earthiness. Taste is of sweet caramel, dark fruit, some chocolate, faint coffee and a dry saltiness that I would say is oyster. Finishes sweet and somewhat short and dry. Hmmm. I would say the "best" oyster stout I have had, somewhat damning with faint praise.

Very smooth taste. Slight taste of the sea. Good maltiness and low hop character.

I didnít know what to expect considering i donít like seafood. But i got the beer for a buck so I figured it was worth a shot. Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head with little or no lacing on the glass. Aroma is of chocolate and smoke and a little hop bitterness. Thin on the palate. Taste and love chocolate smoke and a little saltiness really no seafood or oyster taste at all. Overall not too bad better than what I was expecting.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep black with a very thin fizzy head. Aroma is sweet chocolate and roasted malt with a slight salty tang. Toasty, bitter malt and chocolate flavors up front then fading to a slight toffee sweetness. A dry toasty bitter finish rounds it out quite nicely

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark brown with a thin fizzy head. Aroma is malty caramel and chocolate. Flavors of fig, soy sauce, old leather and cellar. No oyster prominence at all, which is perhaps for the best. Very smooth and a bit on the thin side. Overall not bad, but not one Iíll likely seek out again.
